How to use variant in a sentence?

  1. Vittoria Colliza:

    This [ mandates ] was really a change of paradigm, if you think about vaccine hesitancy and how authorities tried to handle it, at the beginning it was really a lot of pressure on explanations, on communication, and the aim was really not to oblige people but to convince them. And at a certain point, given the very large circulation of the Delta variant in several EU countries, authorities move towards something that is a bit more constraining.

  2. Anthony Fauci:

    We certainly are taking the New York variant, the 526 [referring to B.1.526] very seriously.

  3. Spencer Hill:

  4. Andy Slavitt:

    We should think about the Delta variant as the 2020 version of Covid-19 on steroids, it's twice as infectious. Fortunately, unlike 2020, we actually have a tool that stops the Delta variant in its tracks : It's called vaccine.

  5. President Jim Clements:

    While we all had hoped this pandemic would be behind us when we arrived in August, it is clear the Delta variant has changed the dynamics and heightened our need for continued diligence to protect our students, faculty and staff.
